PS4 and PS5 Requirements Revealed

With the new Free For All update, Fall Guys has been officially released for the Next Gen consoles. And with that comes the opportunity to play with a lot more friends, because not only is Mediatonic’s super popular game available on every platform, it’s also free.

Plus, you don’t need PS+ to play Fall Guys. The base game, with multiplayer functionality (except the Battle Pass), is free on every platform, including PS5, PS4, XBox, Switch, and PC.

The title took the gaming community by storm when it was released in mid-2020. When the pandemic forced the world in, the game touted itself as a fun and casual experience to share with friends.

So, what do players need to play it?

  1. A console of your choice. PC or a Switch will do too.
  2. A stable internet connection.
  3. Friends optional but will multiply the fun 100x.

You don’t need to buy the game or subscribe to one of the many game subscriptions to play it. Mediatonic has removed all barriers, so the game doesn’t require PS Plus, Xbox Game Pass, or any other game service to play.

The only downside to this is that the servers were unreliable and checking server status has become a regular thing before scheduling game sessions with friends.

However, this doesn’t mean you can’t spend money on it. It’s great to have a battlepass system that rewards players with new costumes for the beans and cool titles for their player cards. It’s a good way to support the game.

You can also go to the in-game store to buy more premium cosmetics. The current battle pass features an Ezio costume commemorating 15 years of Assassin’s Creed.

The free-to-play policy may seem weird to people, but the game, with its casual aesthetic and fun gameplay, is perfect for broadening the player base. With new features like voice chat, Fall Guys has become a great free-to-play option to play with friends.

It’s a competitive game, of course, but the quirky and innovative level designs and satisfying gameplay can lead to lots of fun moments.
